Cute!  But almost too true to be funny.

That was good.  I could use a winch for my Le Crueset that my husband gave me (at my request--I didn't specify size or color) last Christmas.  I swear it has a 27 qt. capacity!  I can almost lift it, unless it actually has food in it!  He's a guy, so bigger is better, right?  He wanted to know why I wasn't using it to make stew ('cause we're not having two dozen people over for dinner).

I love that!  And they try to tell us that size doesn't matter, LOL.

Good. In the same vein as the epicurious.com "boiled water" recipe. The comments in the reviews are what make that one hysterical.

The sad part is that the recipe itself was posted seriously - it's listed as having come from Gourmet.  The comments are priceless, however.

There's always someone around to mock the perfect recipe! Shame.

Priceless!!!!!!

absolutely perfect - for some reason I got two issues of the magazine. I haven t ordered, it does not seem to be a gift subscription, so who knows?

I try to read it, but after two paragraphs I am already getting pissed off with the endless convoluted instructions.

give me the recipe and get it over with! I don t care how many thousands of ways you tried it... :-)

I'm actually quite surprised that as a scientist you don't appreciate the application of a rigorous, almost scientific, method to creating a recipe.

THe method of perfecting the recipe is very good - it is the delivery that kills me

way too boring and convoluted - if we were to write a scientific paper like that, no article would ever be accepted. I wish CI would do what they do but present it in a much more condensed way.

Give the recipe. The best one (according to their taste, of course - that's another thing that bothers me, they make it sound as if either you agree their recipe is the best, or.... you are full of IT... ;-)

either before the recipe or after, make a VERY short summary of the different aspects tested. Period.

I've always said that my dislike of their method was that I often disagreed with their intended results.  They may be looking for a cake-like brownie, but I prefer a fudgy one, etc.  The only good thing I can say is that sometimes if one reads their discarded attempts, one can figure out what to do to get what one wants, not what CI says should be the desired end.
